Scripting Language

Hi,  I am new to Mendix. I would like to know which programming language is used as a scripting language in Mendix should the developer wish to extend functionality. In other words, if we are hiring developers to get them to learn Mendix and become certified, what programming background should they have?

Hello, welcome.

On the academy section, there are some training paths to get a base knowledge what you can expect of Mendix and how Mendix is working. I would suggest to take a look at it, maybe it can help you answering your questions.
